Introduction: Definitely fine Japanese dining
Ambience: Sedate refined atmosphere created in part by the large central water garden.
Service: Unhurried, provided by a helpful team (mostly of slender attractive Japanese waitresses)
Food: Beautifully presented without excessive fussyness. A selection of Sushi and Sushimi could not be faulted. The fish and vegetable Tempura was also excellent. Patagonian toothfish with a special dipping sauce was extremely delicate - a new taste experience for me. The one dessert we tried a pancake and green tea icecream was a delight to the eye and the taste buds! Teppanyaki is also available.
Wine: Good list but expensive Best value the Saki
Price: Entrees $18 -25 Mains $22 - 40+ Desserts around $15 About $110 for 2 courses plus drinks
Comments: The elegance is fading but this remains a classy venue serving fine food.
